I have the following:

A1=02/07/23 (23 Jul 02)
A2=00/06/21 (21 Jun 00)

How could I create a formula that will add these two dates and obtain the following result:

Adding A1+A2=02/13/44 which simplifies to (14 Feb 03)

Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Hey - only joking! Do you want the formula to do the 'simplification' as well or just return items of the form

02/13/44
